Featured Client: Central McGowan

Central McGowan, Inc. is a leading distributor of welding and industrial equipment, supplies, abrasives, safety equipment, automation and robotics. Serving industrial, medical, specialty, and beverage companies for over 60 years, Central McGowan maintains a commitment to provide high quality and cost effective solutions to clients in MN and beyond.

For several years, Central McGowan has relied on SJF  to prioritize efficiency and functionality in their ever evolving warehouse design. The latest project utilized a smaller floor space with higher ceilings. With less floor space, comes the challenge of keeping enough room between racks to operate a forklift while still getting the most storage out of the pallet rack system. SJF delivered uprights that fit the needs as well as assisting in planning a custom layout to optimize the space requirements. SJF also filled the order in a short amount of time by cutting down used beam material to make standard 8 foot beams that looked brand new, which also reduced the price.

Featured Equipment: Roll-Out Racks

SpaceSaver Steel Roll-out Racks
These racks are not only hard-to-find in used condition – but also hard to find used in this good of condition.  Similar to cantilever rack – these are used to store long bar or pipe stock.  These racks however, function quite differently.  To store or retrieve materials from the rack, an employee has to crank out a “drawer” on the unit that is then accessbile by crane from above. Each insividual “drawer” or “shelf” can be accessed independantly from the others, and offers very safe and secure storage.

4 ea. Currently Available

  • 4200#/Shelf Capacity
  • Each ‘shelf’ is 36″ deep
  • Cost When New: $14,000 ea.
  • Used, As-Is Price: $9,995 ea.
